What Is Apophsitis?

Apoptosis is a inflammation of the growth plates.  This usually occurs at the growth plate under stress during exercise.  It occurs in children as you can imagine because they are still growing.  An example might be of a youngster pushing him or herself to finish a race when they are younger than 15 years old.

Kids shouldn't have pain.  If they do, and they are involved in sports, apophysitis can be the reason.  At a joint in the body, tendons attach muscle to bone and this may be where the pain exists.

To help the area heal one should cut their exercise or work-out time; and in extreme cases surgery has proven successful.
